Estée Lauder struck a deal with NASA to launch a well-known skin care product on the Cygnus spacecraft atop an Antares rocket on Northrop Grumman’s 14th resupply mission currently scheduled for early October. The cosmetic product “will be photographed in the space station’s iconic cupola window to create images for use on Estée Lauder’s social media platforms,” the company said.
The U.S. cosmetics group is spending $128,000 for NASA to fly ten bottles of serum to the ISS, Bloomberg reported. With this, ISS is entering the commercial sphere.
Estée Lauder is the first-ever beauty brand to participate in NASA’s efforts to enable business opportunities on the International Space Station.
